E3 2007: the details
Following up on an earlier news story, there is more information on the next E3. The event will now take place in July, mainly so that publishers can spend more time polishing games geared for the holidays; and instead of the Los Angeles Convention Center, E3 will be held in two separate hotels. Attendance is expected to be around 5,000 people versus the more than 60,000 who attended the Expo in 2006. The proper name of the convention will be the "E3 Media Festival." IGN adds that attendees will still see press conferences from Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo, as well as the parties E3 is (in)famous for.
